The government designated three drop-off points for relief goods intended for typhoon Ondoy's victims, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) said in a dzBB report.

These drop-off points are the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) center at the Batasan complex in Quezon City, the DSWD National Capital Region (NCR) Office in Quiapo, Manila, and the DSWD National Resource Operations Center in Pasay City, said Defense Secretary Gilberto Teodoro who also heads the NDCC.

DSWD in Batasan can be reached through phone numbers +632 951 7119 and +63918 421 9780, the DSWD NCR through +632 734 8634 to 35 and +63915 291 3722, and the DSWD National Resource Operations Center through +632 852 8081 and +632 734 8622.

These drop-off points were designated to make donations more "systematic," Teodoro said, adding that bottled water, clothes, blanket, and food will be accepted at these facilities.

Petron gasoline stations all across Metro Manila can also accept donations, DSWD Secretary Esperanza Cabral said in a separate report aired over dzBB.

As of twelve noon on Saturday, 5001 individuals have been rescued in Marikina, Teodoro added.

He also confirmed that 42 persons in Rizal province were killed by typhoon Ondoy.

Of this figure, 10 were in Angono, three in Montalban, one in Teresa, 23 in Tanay, and five in Baras, he said, citing a text message from Rizal governor Casimiro "Ito" M. Ynares. - GMANews.TV"

Be careful of text scams and always verify the source first before donating money.
